In the last newsletter, I mentioned I break up my work into small parts. When I am finished, I put it down. I don’t look at it for at least 1 day.
This gives your mind and you time to focus on other things and get your mind off of your project. When you remove yourself from your project, you can let it settle and give it time to “incubate”. When you come back to your project, you will see it in a different light, and be able to begin making any revisions.
For example, with my writing, I write one section or sub-section a day. Then I put it down. When I come back to my writing, I see it in a different light. Sometimes what I write is good, and sometimes not so good (it needs a lot of revision). Some days are better writing or project days than others.
Keeping focused gets the work done and done well!
